From: Joseph Catron, quoting Time magazine:
"Hamas "rules over Gaza in a reign of Islamic terror that has resulted
the murder of hundreds of Christians just because they are Christians,
oppression of women, and the public hanging of homosexuals from
poles," wrote Lapid.
JC: "The claim that Hamas is responsible for the murder of hundreds of
Christians surprised me. I follow what is happening in the Gaza Strip
did not remember a report on the murder of hundreds of Christians,
because they are Christians or for any other reason."
I know what you mean. This immediately reminded me of the London Review
of Books, which last year published a fact-free article by Seymour
Hersch, mostly about the laughable allegation that Assad didn't use
sarin against the insurgent masses of working class outer Damascus (he
alleged they did it to themselves, as Muslims are known to do).
But in amongst all that was this other curious misinformation:
" ... That information concerned al-Nusra, the Islamist rebel group
designated by the US and the UN as a terrorist organisation. Al-Nusra is
known to have carried out scores of suicide bombings against Christians
and other non-Sunni Muslim sects inside Syria."
Hamas murdering hundreds of Christians? Al-Nusra carrying out "scores"
of suicide bombings against Christians and other non-Sunni? Amazing what
the reactionary and Islamophobic mind can conjure up.
